Robert Mugabe Could Face Arrest For Contempt Of Parliament

Former Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe risks arrest if he doesn’t show up at Parliament on Monday.

Mugabe has been summoned to parliament for a hearing set for today on alleged leakages of diamonds at Chiadzwa during his reign which he is on record as saying amounted $15 billion.

The elderly ex leader was also supposed to appear before parliament on Wednesday last week but did not show up.

Mugabe has been served with letters inviting him to appear before the Mines and Energy portfolio committee and clarify claims he made in 2016 that Zimbabwe had lost $15 billion through diamond leakages.

The committee chairperson Temba Mliswa said, “We expect him to have time to appear before Parliament. We expect him to co-operate and Parliament has power to summon anyone.”

In the summoning letter, Mugabe is required to brief the committee on the alleged loss of $15 billion in diamond revenue and the context in which you are alleged to have said that statement.

“The mines committee believes you may have useful information for the committee to conclude its report,”the letter reads in part.
